Why is my Scheduled Task not running when I am logged off?

Hello, I am having some difficulty getting a Task Scheduler task to execute when I am logged off the computer.

The task runs perfectly when I am logged in (when scheduled or ran manually).

The "Run whether user is logged on or not" Option is selected.

The Event Property displayed when Windows attempts to run this task (while logged off) is: "Task Scheduler did not launch task "\AutoRun_MorningReports" as it missed its schedule. Consider using the configuration option to start the task when available, if schedule is missed."

When I turn on the "Run task as soon as possible after a scheduled start is missed", the task will not run UNTIL I log into the user account.

I would like to find a way of getting this task to execute when I am logged off as this PC restarts at midnight every day and this task needs to run every morning.

Any information you provide can help.

Thank you!

Can you right click the task and select "Export", save the XML file and then post it back here? That way we can recreate your task with our own account to see what happens.

You didn't select "Do not store password" did you?
